I Didn’t Start Yet……..

We all have procrastinated about something important that we had to do, sometimes disappointing other people and often disappointing ourselves. Why do we procrastinate?

We procrastinate with many different aspects of our lives, homework, chores, waking up, and others. Why do we procrastinate though? We procrastinate to remain comfortable in not doing the tasks at hand. However, wouldn’t we be more comfortable having the task already done, avoiding stress and pressure to get the task at hand done? ‘Out of sight, out of mind’, is a phrase we could use to describe the procrastination. Without the task at hand being done, we may trick ourselves into believing that we are avoiding stress that comes with it to do well. Fear of failure, and fear of disappointment, motivate us to procrastinate as well, if we don’t do it, we don’t have to face the appearing inevitability of failure and disappoint in ourselves and the disappointment of others. This could possibly lead to never getting the project done, but it is called procrastination, not giving up.
